In Wari, exactly at "Tati Bazar Mor (তাঁতি বাজার মোড়)", there is a lovely place inside a boundary which is called "Nogore Nishorgo". This initiative had been taken by the Bangladesh government as a process of embellishment the Dhaka City. It is hard to find any beauty at this Dhaka city, almost no sign of green. Authority just wanted to give some green flavor by creating some artificial structures of this park.
